Works well with an old power supply. Tested first with multimeter as some people report boards dead on arrival, but this worked OK.

This is an excellent monitor and works well, but it suffers from one slight fault. The labels on the control buttons are completely unreadable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Full of errors, 17 Jan. 2015
I do not understand how this book can have any good reviews. It is essentially a set of subject areas with extensive sample questions, all of which have answers at the back.

But here is the problem; many of the questions are badly written and far too many of the answers are wrong. This seems to be admitted by the publishers who have produced a lengthy errata sheet (9 densely packed pages); however that does not cover all the errors that exist.

Trying to use this book to learn is a depressing expeience

Not a great product. It matches its low price with poor performance and etremely poor battery life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 11 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works well. Keyboard pleasant and big enough for big hands. Bluetooth really is 'zero setup'; a first for bluetooth. Mouse pad works well. Overall feel is good and battery lasts well. It can also be replaced as it is a standard mobile phone one and is easily accessible.

The one thing stopping this getting 5 stars is that the Y and Z keys are swapped. Possibly designed for anther market?

Despite that I would highly recommend.

3.5mm Jack to 3 x RCA Phono Lead Audio / Video AV Cable
3.5mm Jack to 3 x RCA Phono Lead Audio / Video AV Cable
Offered by Northeast Cables Ltd
Price: £2.35

3.0 out of 5 stars There is no standard for RCA to 3.5mm - Check pinout to see if this is this right for you, 24 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is fine, but it does not match my Video / AV pinout. There seem to be at least 5 combinations and this is a 'Camcorder' standard wiring which has 'Video' one in from the tip, 'earth' 2 in from the tip, 'Left Audio' on the tip and 'Right Audio' on the base of the 3.5mm jack.
I needed video on the tip and earth on the base..... a bit of time with the wire cutters and soldering iron will not fix this.

Still, cable is ok and is a good length (approx 2m) and would have been ideal.

This works and can be used with a science class to split sunlight, but the 'glass' it is made from may not have a refractive index of 1.5 . It does work though and the box and prism was as shown.


Adventures With Astronomy
Adventures With Astronomy
by Percy Seymour
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not be bettered, 21 April 2014
This is a great book with a lot of information packed into its 70 pages. It is structured around a series of 'experiments' or 'projects'. Some of these can be completed with young children (e.g. project 4: making a sundial) whilst others will stretch teenagers (e.g. Project 19: Making a Dobsonian telescope).

None of the projects need specialist equipment and I used the book to guide some children aged 8 and 9 to make a simple astronomical telescope (Project 14: the lenses cost £2 from poundland. A jewelers 'Loupe' and a magnifying glass).

This book is a great treasure and has bought pleasure to everyone who has got their hands on it. Cover price is £5.95 but at the moment Amazon has them new for half price.
